"Thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedule to come and speak at our school. The feedback was amazing from the students, staff and parents. You really made a tremendous impact on our kids. Again, thank you for coming,"
Angela Miller and the Students at Chinook Trail Elementary
"I've shared the stage with many speakers and I can tell you, Eli delivers a highly meaningful message in an entertaining fashion. He has a style that I like to call ... light, tight and right for any audience."

"We very much enjoyed your presentation and I heard a lot of great comments from students and staff. The pacing of the presentation, along with the video clips you interspersed throughout your talk was perfect. Personally, I appreciated your connection between working hard and not taking 'short cuts' to success, which included not using drugs as a way to speed the way to success. I think the students really connected with the message and it was a perfect tie in to our kick off for Red Ribbon Week."
Principal, Edith Wolford Elementary School
"Eli is a dynamic speaker who passionately speaks from the heart. He was an inspiration to all of our volunteers to "run their own race" with a disciplined, enduring heart of a champion! Any audience would be inspired to go above and beyond what they think they could after listening to his story!"
